Can you help keep Patriotrealm on line?

Comedy. The Last Frontier. 

The Marshalls have moved in. The posses are out in force. The lynch mobs are around every piece of tumbleweed, ambush alley or Acme shed. 

No one is safe from the hanging tree if you are white, heterosexual, conservative and can still have a  laugh.  Hell, even the black conservatives are in the firing line. 

In a world where political correctness tiptoes on eggshells, navigating the fine line between being offended and being offensive has become an art form.   

All I can say is no wonder the chicken crossed the road. She hoped it would be safer on the other side. Only it isn't. Because to get to the other side means you have to cross a highway of laws, hate speech accusations and lawsuits. The poor chicken rarely makes it. And, if she does, she is roasted for giving a cluck. 

Every joke these days is reported to a moderator on social media because someone was offended. It seems to me that to laugh these days, is offensive. 

We just weren't precious back in the day, were we? We were allowed to laugh at the absurdities. Now? Hell, Nothing is allowed to be funny anymore. 

Humour is a subjective and complex form of human expression that evokes laughter, amusement, or enjoyment. It relieves stress. And, as they say, laughter is the best medicine. 

Just look at the court jester - In times of hardship or political instability, the court jester played a crucial role in maintaining the morale of the court. Their ability to inject humor into difficult situations provided a welcome respite from the challenges of court life. But beware the fool who fell foul of the ruler of the day. Much like modern times, really. 

 

To shed some light on this delicate dance, let's turn to the masters of British comedy - Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Absolutely Fabulous.

If there's one group that knew how to push boundaries it was the legendary Monty Python troupe. From the Spanish Inquisition to the Ministry of Silly Walks, these comedic geniuses built their empire on the absurd and the unexpected. But that was nearly 55 years ago. Think about it. They wouldn't have a hope in hell today. 

In the realm of being offensive, Monty Python takes the gold medal in the Offence Olympics. But here's the catch - it was all in good fun. The key to their success lay in the fact that they were an equal opportunity offender. Nobody is safe, and that's precisely why we still love them. They remind us not to take life too seriously, even if it means getting slapped with a fish.

 But aren't we being slapped in the face these days?  Of course we are. Every day. By our media, our governments and we are supposed to stand there at take it. 

All you have to do is look at the grand final of the International Philosophy Challenge. Is this not accurate?  China the referee and ....well, what can I say? 

Enter Fawlty Towers, the hotel where service is shoddy, tempers are short, and political correctness is but a distant dream. Basil Fawlty, the irritable and perpetually flustered owner, doesn't discriminate when it comes to offending guests. From Germans to Spaniards, everyone gets a taste of his special brand of hospitality.

Fawlty Towers teaches us that being offensive isn't always intentional; sometimes, it's just a byproduct of sheer incompetence. 

Basil Fawlty's ability to insult with a smile is an art form, reminding us that laughter can be found in the chaos of miscommunication. Can you imagine an episode of Fawlty Towers that was politically correct? Oh, hang on a minute.....

 

Neither can I.  There was nothing wrong with it., It was what we used to call " funny. " Before humour was banned. 

And our government wants to ban misinformation. Funny that. No doubt that means banning Fawlty Towers.  

That is about it in a nutshell. Fawlty Towers is Misinformation. 

Now, let's shift gears to the glamorous and utterly outrageous world of Absolutely Fabulous. Edina and Patsy, the dynamic duo of dysfunction, redefine the term 'offensive' with their unabashed disregard for social norms. They navigate the world of fashion and PR ( sorry about that ) with all the grace of a bull in a china shop.

In Absolutely Fabulous, offense is a fashion statement. Political correctness is so last season, darling. Edina and Patsy effortlessly offend everyone in their path, and yet we can't help but love them for it. Their antics serve as a reminder that sometimes, laughter is the best accessory.  They drank. They smoked. They were promiscuous. 

Oh how dreadful. 

In the end, the distinction between being offended and being offensive can be as blurry as Mr. Magoo's vision. Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Absolutely Fabulous invite us to step back, laugh at ourselves, and revel in the absurdity of the human experience.

Embrace the silliness, wear your humour like a badge of honor, and remember that sometimes, the best way to diffuse tension is with a well-timed punchline – preferably one involving a parrot, a faulty tower, or a bottle of Bolly. Cheers to the laughter that transcends offence.

But sadly, Humour is becoming extinct. Much like the koalas. 

Killed - nay - murdered by climate change activists and left wing weirdos who have forgotten how to laugh. 

Remember the laughs we had from people like Lloyd Bridges? 

 How did they know that we would have a president who was worse than President Benson or Admiral Benson ?  It really is the greatest tragedy that could be imagined. 

Comedy is now the stuff of reality and it was all told to us through comedic movies that today would be banned. For being offensive. 

From years ago when everything is now coming true. The incompetent president is now a reality. 

What a tragedy that we ignored the warnings. 

But, hey, nothing to see here. The media and government told me so. 

 

 

 Yes, there are alot of videos today. But they are worth a watch. Please feel free to add your own in the comments. We all need a laugh. Monty
